Would you believe us if we said it all started with a watercolor donut?
Yep, you read that right. Our entire business started with a simple watercolor donut painting. Haley, the owner of Sugar Mint and artist behind our designs, has always loved painting, art, crafting, & any other hobby that uses the creative side of the brain. One day she decided to sit down & well, paint some cute donuts... She decided to turn those watercolor donuts into Sugar Mint's first card ever & the rest is history!
A few words from Haley: My entire life I have always had a LOVE for paper goods, stationery, notebooks, etc. As a little girl, I would make my mom a 3D birthday card every year using anything I could find around the house. Cotton balls as the "bubble bath", a bobby pin as the "faucet", Q-tips & construction paper as a "lamp." You name it, I probably made a miniature version of it and stuck it into a 3D card.
I always knew that I wanted to share my designs & illustrations with the world someday & now I get to do that with Sugar Mint! It makes my heart so happy to see our designs out in the world. Sometimes I have to pinch myself to make sure I am not dreaming!
Thank you so much for stopping by & taking the time to read this! I hope our colorful gifts & paper goods make you as happy as they do us!
